Thanks for sharing this recipe it was just what i was looking for. I made these and put them in a big glass jar as a birthday gift for my big brother Yorke. He loves Ginger. I followed the recipe exactly and it made well over 12 biscuits and I would describe them as chunky and crunchy. i took photo of how they turned out. - 27 Aug 2011
